Botanical Shawl

Now I need to start a new project.

This triangular shawl is knit sideways starting with a tiny corner increasing to the border. Stripes and slipped stitches decorate the linear lines of the fabric. One solid yarn combined with one self-striping yarn produce an exciting project that’s easy to knit and fascinating to watch the colors unfold. This pattern is a great beginner shawl project with simple stitches. You can stop early for a smaller shawl or knit more repeats for a larger shawl. 
The pattern is called the Botanical Shawl and you can purchase it on Ravelry. Stephen isn’t exaggerating when he says it is a great beginner shawl. I purchased the pattern and read through it. It is perfect summer knitting.
Stephen uses a solid fingering weight yarn with Zauberball Crazy.

Zauberball® has been kicked up a notch, as two strands of the main ply have been dyed individually and then twisted together for a crazy combination! The end result is a self-striping multi-colored pattern, with a bold variegated design!
I am thinking about using Dyed in the Wool instead of Zauberball. The yarn is in a bag for now - I really need to finish something first but.....

We are sad to say that we can no longer get Namaste bags and accessories. They are being discontinued but don’t worry because they are bringing out something for the fall that you will love!
